I have an update from day two and a few pics, unfortunately had to get on a southbound afternoon train and missed Col. Allen West, but I was able to catch a few more images from some behind the scenes and of course fellow Disrupt The Narrative blogster P. Henry had some interesting footage of an OWS invasion posted on PJ Tatler.
First I will say my Governor Bob McDonnell delivered a fantastic speech and took advantage of his CPAC moment to introduce himself to the nation. He eloquently outlined how his adherence to conservative principles has rewarded the citizens of the Virginia Commonwealth and resulted in budget surpluses and a #1 rank in job creation. He also outlined his families American military service from his grandfather to his daughter in Iraq.
Next Rick Santorum addressed the crowd and delighted the crowd and earned several standing ovations. Santorum effectively outlined what it will take to defeat Obama in November and how only he offers the boldest contrast on Obamacare, energy/manufacturing, and environmental regulations that will be necessary to defeat Obama.
Santorum is the only candidate who has called for medical savings accounts and consumer based health care reform solutions, was against TARP, and has not advocated for economy killing, carbon tax schemes based on the fallacy of man-made global warming.
Here are some pics from day 2 of CPAC 2012;
